A sample of 337 randomly selected SS II students was taken from a population of 1682 students in Potiskum LGA, Yobe state. Data analysis was done using descriptive statistics as well as the t-test. The result shown that, there is significance difference between the mean performance of students taught in an ideal learning environment and that of students taught in a dull learning environment at 0.05 level of significance. The findings were discussed with a view to improving both the quality of learning environment and academic achievement in mathematics.
